Online Project Based Learning (PBL)

Project Based Learning Classes are classes you work on online at school or at home under the direction of a Hamilton certified teacher.  Online Project Based Learning classes are available to all Hamilton students.  An online class will guide the student towards completion of a project.  Students are required to communicate with a mentor teacher as well.  There will be an opportunity at the end of each semester to share and display the project in Hamilton at an expo.   In addition to the project, each class will allow the student to take advantage of an extended learning opportunity taught by a community expert.  Not finishing the project could jeopardize future enrollment.

See this PDF for the Essentials of Project Based Learning.
